IP ratings refer to the rank of protection given by an enclosure, against dust and liquids. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (sweat).
Having a value of IPX4, the Technics EAH AZ60M2's rating is read as, the first number of X denotes that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second value of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
In comparison to the Technics EAH AZ60M2, JBL Wave Buds have a rating of IP54 meaning that ingress of dust is not totally prevented but dust does not enter in harmful quantities to interfere with the correct operation or impair safety and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids

The JBL Wave Buds also have stereo speakers
Active noise cancellation uses advanced technology to reduce unwanted ambient sounds. How it works, it studies the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and generates a mirror signal to counter it. Simply put, it's like having +1 (noise) and adding -1 (inverted noise) giving zero which results in a reduced level of noise.
The Technics EAH AZ60M2 have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, good for your ears since you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.

A driver unit is basically a mini speaker that produces sound in the device, the unit size corellates with the loudness of the earbuds.
JBL Wave Buds driver unit is 8mm in diameter, making both devices similar in how loud their sound gets , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers usually have difficulty producing high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they deliver better quality sound.
The Technics EAH AZ60M2's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device produces low frequencies that can be heard, and if it alters the signal while at it.
JBL Wave Buds's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this implies that both devices produce equal bass
Technics EAH AZ60M2's highest frequency is at 40,000Hz, high-frequency response tells how well a particular audio component generates high human frequencies and if it adjustments to the signal while at it.
JBL Wave Buds's highest frequency is at 20,000Hz, this implies that Technics EAH AZ60M2 generate a clearer and crispier treble than the JBL Wave Buds
The sound pressure level, is the pressure level of sound, measured in decibels, dB, JBL Wave Buds's measurement is 100dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
Technics EAH AZ60M2's battery life is 7.5 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is given by the manufacturer, and with more battery hours, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
JBL Wave Buds's battery life is more than that of Technics EAH AZ60M2 by 0.5 hours . Each time you recharge your earbuds, they get a little less listening time. The effect is not noticeable at first, but over time, your wireless earbuds will have shorter listening time.
This is given by the manufacturer, and Technics EAH AZ60M2's case is said to have a charge of 25 hours. A charging case with more battery hours enables you to recharge your earbuds on the go many times before recharging the case itself.
